Un état des lieux théoriques de l'évaluation: une discipline à la remorque d'une révolution scientifique qui n'en finit pas

This article examines the present state of the theoretical bases of program evaluation by applying key analytical criteria proposed by Kuhn and by Lakatos for the study of scientific disciplines. The study identifies the main theoretical and empirical components of the discipline, clarifies their interactions, and discusses their influence on the development of the discipline.
